Nehar Shalom is so thrilled to gather as a community for High Holy Day services this year.
All are welcome at our services, and as always, there is no cost to attend.
Registration is required to attend Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services.
We do welcome, encourage, and appreciate donations to support and sustain this holy community.
All services will take place at First Church JP at 6 Eliot St in Jamaica Plain, including our Erev Rosh Hashanah potluck dinner. All indoor services will be livestreamed.
Support our Community
In order for our services to happen, we need a significant amount of community support. We are asking everyone who registers for services to sign up for a volunteer shift, if you are able.
As always, our High Holiday services and programs are free of charge. For those who are able, we ask members and non-members alike to support our services and programs by making a sliding scale donation. Here is a suggested sliding scale:
Household Income Suggested Donation
Nehar Shalom Community Synagogue is a volunteer driven, non-profit organization and we sincerely appreciate any resources that you are able to share with our community.
Accessibility and Safety
Our space at 6 Eliot Street is wheelchair accessible from the Eliot St entrance. The bathrooms are fully wheelchair accessible.
We ask everyone who attends to refrain from wearing any perfume or scented deodorant or hair products to services, and to refrain from using highly scented soap, shampoo, or laundry detergent before attending services.
A quiet/low sensory space is available inside the church building during services.
If you have any questions about accessibility, please reach out to Alix at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be no planned police presence at our services. The Kavod Community Safety team, a group of trained community members who provide safety support at many local events, will be present throughout.
We are overjoyed and grateful to be able to gather in person for the High Holy days this year. The Nehar Shalom COVID committee, ritual committee, and board of directors continue to work diligently to balance safety, accessibility, and connection during this time. We hope that our plan for gathering will meet as many of our community’s needs as possible, and we will remain flexible in response to changing information about COVID and our community. Our full COVID policy is updated regularly.
We will require masking for congregants at all services.
Our service leaders will be unmasked to support accessibility.
Please stay home/ join us by livestream if you have any symptoms of any illness.
